Temporarily out of Luck


Vicki Batman

Great job. What man? And murder. Newly employed at Wedding Wonderland, Hattie Cooks is learning the industry from an expert planner. When her former brother-in-law is found dead in his luxury SUV, all fingers point to Hattie’s sister who is planning her own “I dos.”

Detective Allan Wellborn is caught between a rock and a hard place—Hattie’s family and investigating the murder of a well-connected Sommerville resident, the same loser who was once married to Hattie’s sister. Determining who’s the bad guy—or gal—isn’t going to be easy and sure to piss someone off.

Can Hattie beat the clock to uncover who murdered Jonson before Tracey is charged and her wedding is ruined?

“Opera? Since when do you like opera?” 

I held back a giggle. “Since yesterday.” 

Allan blew a huge sigh. “Done.” He paused. “Opera?”
